Let the speculation end.  The boys are back!

Entourage will hit the big screen, because the cast and the  producers will all sign on with Warner Bros. as reported on Friday 10/25.

As previously reported, several cast members on the show had been holding out for a bigger piece of the action, but everyone has been pointing fingers at each other.  Now we know the primary holdouts have been Adrian Grenier (Vince Chase) and Jerry Ferrara (Turtle).  This coming from sources connected to the production.

Word has it Grenier, Ferrara and some other cast members resent that Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold) will be getting a bigger payday and bigger piece of the back-end than them, and they’ve been haggling.  Although the story lines revolve around the group of friends, it is Piven’s Gold that really drives the show.  Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Sloan confirmed the news via twitter.

 

Warner Bros. told the cast and producers that it would give out a certain amount of  back-end, and it was up to them to figure out who gets what.  It appears that everything has been settled and is ready to move forward.

Some fans may be upset at the actors for holding out, but when you are looking at potential multi picture deal you want to be taken care of.  Regardless we can’t wait!!!  Until then, watch this and get pumped!

 

Batfleck’s Friends Speak Out!

George Clooney is possibly the biggest movie star on the planet and also happened to play Batman (horribly).

“Batman is still the biggest break I ever had and it completely changed my career, even if it was weak and I was weak in it,” Clooney told Total Film in a 2011 interview. “It was a difficult film to be good in. I don’t know what I could have done differently.”  I think we can all agree the nipple suit would have been a good starting point.

With that being said, did Clooney offer Ben Affleck (Clooney’s producer partner on the Best Picture winning Argo) any advice on playing the caped crusader in the upcoming  Man of Steel 2 (Batman vs. Superman) movie?

“I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part,” Clooney said to Empire magazine (via The Playlist).

Despite that, Clooney did provide some rational thoughts to those Batman fans who were (and still are) so outraged by Affleck’s casting. “I tend to look at it like this, let’s just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up,” he said. “He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing.”  I tend to agree with Clooney.  Most fanboys reacted in the same manor to the news Heath Ledger would be playing the Joker and that turned out to be an unforgettable performance.  We never want to admit, but “some” Hollywood producers know what they are doing.

Matt Damon also weighed in with words of support in August, when the Batfleck controversy was at its climax (until the first screen shots or trailer are released).

“I think it will be great. It will be terrific. I know there are a lot of people grousing on the internet. I just think it’s kind of funny. You know, he’s not playing King Lear. It’s Batman!” Damon said to the Times of India. “[That’s] certainly within his skill set. If anybody saw ‘Argo’ or ‘The Town,’ and all the work he’s been doing lately, its way more nuanced and interesting and way more difficult than Batman! Batman just sits there with his cowl over his head and whispers in a kinda gruff voice at people. Bruce Wayne is the more challenging part of the role, and Ben will be great at that.”

Affleck will play Batman in Warner Bros.‘ “Man of Steel” sequel. The film is due out in theaters on July 17, 2015.
